Howdy guys and gals, new to the forums, just getting back into bass and just starting to gig with a band. We like to call our style Americana, but we mostly play Folk, Old Country and a bit of Blues thrown in for good measure. Anyway, I'm looking to go with a kind of vintage sound, I'm playing a Gretsch 5123B with flatwounds, but right now I'm just playing through the PA. We are starting to get gigs bigger than the local open mic night so I'm looking to get an amplifier. That being said we aren't playing for more than a couple of hundred people so I'm looking at a combo of some sort. Tube driven would be the amp of choice I think, would you guys recommend the Fender TV series, Bassman '59 Reissue, or something else? Money is kind of tight, so cost effective would be nice, but I know Tubes and Price kind of go hand in hand... What do you guys think?
